A fair Q. and something i have been meaning to expand upon here.
Here is an article from a Naturapath mate (who is a solid Cyclist at age 37 now) - Attached is the photo the article talks about
Today we take a look at the first of the 3 White Poisons – Being. . .
The Consequences of Consuming Refined Table Salt
The result of consuming common table salt is the formation of an overly acidic body with an excess of fluid in the body tissue. For those women out there, it is also one of the possible causes of cellulite. (1) That’s why doctors tell us to avoid salt in our diet.
Does this sound familiar to you? Arthritis, gout, kidney and gall bladder stones?
Want to know why you suffer from these . . . ?
For every 1 gram of sodium chloride (plain table salt) that cannot be eliminated, the body uses 23 times the amount of its own cell water to neutralise the salt.
If the sodium chloride is still too high, re-crystallisation of the table salt occurs as the body uses available non-degradable animal proteins (as those found in processed milk), which also have no value and cannot be broken down and eliminated. (2)
The body uses these proteins to produce uric acid in order to get rid of the excess salt. So the body can’t dispose of uric acid; it binds itself with the sodium chloride to form new crystals that are deposited directly in the bones and joints.
This is the cause of different kinds of rheumatism such as arthritis, gout, and kidney and gall bladder stones.
This re-crystallisation is the body’s band-aid solution for the cells and organs in order to protect the body from the irreparable damage of irresponsible food intake. But in the long run, it poisons the system because those substances cannot be disposed of.
We must be aware that the numbers of diseases associated with refined salt’s daily use are increasing rapidly. Many of us believe that life is not possible without salt.
But our consumption of salt could be KILLING US. Because our regular table salt no longer has anything in common with the original crystal salt.
Salt nowadays is mainly sodium chloride and not salt.
While our body only requires the minute amount of 0.2 gram of salt per day, most of us suffer from a lack of salt, even though we’re over-saturated with sodium chloride. When our consumption of salt is less than 0.2 gram per day, salt cravings kick in. However, our body is only able to excrete 4.8 grams to 7 grams a day through our kidneys, depending on our age, constitution and sex.
The body recognises table salt as an aggressive cellular poison, an unnatural substance, and wants to eliminate it as quickly as possible in order to protect itself.
This causes a constant overburden on our organs of excretion. In almost, every preserved product, salt is used as part of the preservation process. So, by adding salt to the already salted food, the body receives more salt than it can get rid of.
What do these Microscopic Views of Salt Crystals Tell Us?
The result of this research proves how well developed and vital the crystal of Himalayan Salt is. It actually has life generating power for our body and our nervous system. The photo at left is the Himalayan Salt at 50x magnification.
The regular table salt shows no vibrant crystalline structure but exclusively dead crystals. As a food, it’s absolutely useless, if not a destructive poison. This is why doctors tell us to use less salt in our diets. The photo at the Centre, is normal table salt (sodium chloride) at 50x magnification.
Sea salt falls between the two. It displays crystalline structure; however, the crystals are isolated from their important, vital elements. Therefore, an ional-colloidal assimilation of the elements cannot be guaranteed. The photo at right, at 50x magnification
The balanced crystalline structure of Himalayan Salt reveals a crystal full of life. When taken as food, it will have a vital energetic effect on the body. The result is only a net gain for the body with zero energy loss.
The unnatural crystals are totally isolated from each other and dead. In order for the body to try to metabolise these crystals, it must sacrifice tremendous amounts of energy with very little results, resulting in a damaging loss and zero gain. Hence the importance when you next buy salt, ensure it is Ayurvedic Rock Salt on your next order.
Leave the table salt alone and try Ayurvedic Rock Salt instead.
